Allow part payments to be sent from Alma to WPM for online payments
Allow a user to choose the sum they wish to pay when making an online payment via WPM. At the moment it is only possible to pay the total fine/fees owed, no option is given to enter and pay a lesser amount.
While WPM will accept whatever amount is sent from Alma, and Alma will handle whatever payment is sent from WPM back to Alma (closing fees as possible, and partially closing fees if the paid amount does not exactly match the owed amount), Alma can only send WPM one payment element with the total amount the user owes (as confirmed in https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/010Alma_Online_Help_(English)/090Integrations_with_External_Systems/040Fulfillment/090WPM_Education_E-Payment_System )
Users should be given the option to enter an amount they wish to pay, this is then the amount sent to WPM for processing the payment.
Note we are users of Summon over Alma, so any change to work with Summon as well as Primo.
Having had WPM set up their end of the online payments, they have included the ability to edit the amount a user wishes to pay. It will accept any payment from a min of £1 up to the total amount owed. Alma will process whatever it receives, so despite being told it was not an option, part payments are possible.
